have to do with whether he supports religious freedom or not? There are many atheists who oppose religious liberty (for instance, I heard one self-described atheist on this site say he supports making clergy ineligible for political office, essentially endorsing a religious test for office), as well as many self-described Christians who support absolute religious liberty.
